“I was sexually harassed by Scott Baio and ultimately assaulted by him between the ages of 12 and 15 years old,” Polinsky told a gathering of reporters. The now 43-year-old Alexander Polinsky, who played Adam Powell on the long-running sitcom, detailed allegations in a news conference alongside celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom and fellow “Charles in Charge” actress Nicole Eggert at Bloom’s Woodland Hills office Wednesday morning.
Last month, Eggert – who played Jamie Powell on the show – accused Baio of inappropriately touching her when she was 14 and carrying on an inappropriate sexual relationship with her as a minor. Polinsky Wednesday said that during the first season of the show, he walked in on Eggert sitting on Baio’s lap. Eggert said he “misjudged” the situation, and when he himself tried to jump in Baio’s lap, Baio shoved him off and called him a gay slur.
“I saw their relationship develop on the set in the coming months and years and it was very distressing to me to see a man I looked up to behaving in this way with someone who is very close to my age,” Polinsky said.
Polinsky claims Baio used repeated gay slurs against him and told him inappropriate stories about “his sexual conquests with young girls and the costars of the show.” One time Baio “pulled down my pants in front of over one hundred people,” and on another occasion, “exposed his genitals to me,” Polinsky added.
However, Polinsky emphasized that he was not himself sexually abused by Baio.
“There was no sexual abuse,” Baio said.
Bloom told reporters that Eggert filed a Los Angeles police report against Baio on Feb. 6. Polinsky also spoke to police at that time, Bloom disclosed.
“There is a possibility of criminal action,” Bloom said.
Eggert told “The Dr. Oz Show” that they were in a car outside his home when Baio “reached out and started touching me, below the belt, in the female parts.” She said Baio made it clear that nobody could know, that it was illegal and “everybody could lose their job, even myself…so I stayed silent.”
Eggert who also made the allegations on “Megyn Kelly Today,” said Baio had sexual intercourse with her when she was 17. The age of consent in California is 18.
“He sort of manipulated me in the way of, ‘Let me get you ready for boys your own age,’” Eggert said. “I agreed to that. It was awkward to say the least.”
Baio is more than 11 years older than Eggert.
Romney Speaks Out For Stronger Gun Background Checks in Utah Race
Mitt Romney used his first big speech as a Utah Senate candidate to call for action to prevent another deadly mass shooting like the one at a Florida high school that killed 17 people.
The former GOP presidential candidate said it’s “wrong and unacceptable for children in our schools to fear for their lives” and that shootings will keep happening unless action is taken to prevent them.
Romney made the remarks at a speech Friday night before core members of Utah’s Republican Party at a party fundraising dinner in Provo.
Romney says he would support an effort in Congress to strengthen the FBI database of prohibited gun buyers but said states will have to come up with solutions like enhanced school security and special teams that intervene with children who may be having emotional issues.
McMaster: Incontrovertible Evidence Russia Helped Trump
The national security adviser to President Trump said Saturday that the new FBI indictments show indisputably that Russians meddled in U.S. elections.
During the Munich Security Conference in Germany, H.R. McMaster said “with the FBI indictment, the evidence is now incontrovertible” that Moscow meddled in the 2016 campaign.
He also scoffed at any move to work with Russia on cybersecurity, saying “we would love to have a cyber dialogue when Russia is sincere about curtailing its sophisticated form of espionage.”
McMaster’s remarks follow the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies by a federal grand jury for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential elections. The case brought by Robert Mueller, special counsel for the Justice Department, details a sophisticated plot to wage “information warfare” against the U.S.
On Friday, the DOJ announced charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 election. The charges included conspiracy to defraud the United States. Three defendants were also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants with aggravated identity theft.
The indictments come as part of Mueller’s larger investigation looking into possible ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign associates and Russia. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.
$26 Million of Inauguration Money Paid to Company That Didn’t Exist
$26 million to an event planning firm that didn’t exist only weeks before the inaguration according to reporting by the New York Times.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, also serves as a senior advisor to the first lady, although she is not paid for her White House work. The inaugural committee reported paying $26 million to WIS Media Partners, a limited liability company that Wolkoff set up in late 2016 specifically to collect this money.
The problem is also there is no sign the company actually did any work, or submitted bills — but that was just paid the money.
